Someone mentioned Moist for patrician at a Making Money signing, and Sir Terry was all like, "What?". So I think we're safe.
I had a dream once that Moist became Patrician, and he called himself "King Dragon". It was pretty weird, but Charles Dance was in it. :D(Nice siggy, Pooh! That excerpt was good, huh?)
Welcome to the site, Inkmusic! :D

Good news, but hardly surprising that Terry isn't thinking of making Moist the Patrician. The fact that someone has mentioned it probably means there's even less chance now. :lol:

Or *shudder* he's considering it now. I'd have to re-watch that video, if I can find the link.

I would like to see another witches book. While they were featured in the Tiffany Aching series which really developed their characters, I would like to see a book dedicated to them as their characters stand after the Aching series.

Yes but 'A Collegiate Casting-out of Devilish Devices' has been around for years, it just hasn't appeared in a paper based medium before so it's hardly a hint of something to come
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Come to think, if there'd be yet another wacth book, why not have vimes face a foe with whose view on the world Vimes actually agrees.

I hope hope hope for another Death/Susan book!! As someone mentioned, we haven't had one in ages and I'm really starting to miss those characters. I also feel like Terry could still do so much with those characters (can't say the same about the Watch/AM).

Or something completely refreshing, with an all new set of characters, like Scouting for trolls. Who knows?

I'm not so sure what to make of Long Earth/Raising Taxes yet. We'll see.

And on a final note, I don't believe the Discworld will have a such a thing as a final book. I guess Terry will write a few more and at a certain point he'll (have to) stop. It's better that way. But for now he's not showing any signs of losing steam. :D

Regarding Pratchett on not considering Moist for future Patrician: I'm actually disappointed (and hoping this was just Terry being coy). Because in MM Moist looks at Vetinari as a role model in matters of human manipulation. Also Moist is developing as a popular civil servant, but the challenge of doing something unpopular as getting the AM citizenry to actually do their part in supporting the public good by paying their taxes may be what he needs to progress from one who is in it for the challenge and adventure to one who is in it for the good of the city. And that transformation is a necessity for anyone with whom Vetinari would want to entrust his dear city.

Young Sam is now of a suitable age to attend Susan's school. I'd love to see him coming home with tales from the history field trips. Alas, I doubt Pratchett will go there.
